Welcome to the website of the Cyprus Semiotics Circle (CSC). We are a local community of academics, researchers, scientists, designers, artists, and friends who share a common interest for the study of signs and signification in culture.
Semiotics is a research area which seeks to discover systems of meaning in all the phenomena of civilisation in current as well as past societies. The object of study of Semiotics includes verbal and non-verbal communication, such as text, image, sound, colours, graphics, typography, animation, kinetics, architecture environment, design, literature, translation, everyday behavior, forms of expression such as theatre, cinema, arts, multimedia, in general anything that evolves meaning.
In this way, Semiotics intersects with all arts and a wide range of theoretical and applied sciences, from sociology, folklore, anthropology, archaeology and psychology, through to philosophy, linguistics, cultural communication and literature review, visual communication to architecture and town planning.
